The Big Board: Updated list of Patriots’ private workouts

03.28.11 at 4:21 pm ET

Here’€™s our latest list of players who have had or will have private workouts or meetings with the Patriots. It should be noted that (as we stated here previously) private workouts are a way for a team to gather additional ‘€œintel,’€ in the words of one veteran agent, to try and figure out if that prospect might be a good fit for their system. There’€™s also the real possibility that some of these workouts are bonafide attempts at misdirection, hoping to get another team interested in a prospect simply because the Patriots have feigned interest. In addition, this is by no means a complete list ‘€” simply a rundown of those we have independently verified:

Hillsdale wide receiver Andre Holmes
Florida offensive lineman Mike Pouncey
Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith
Kentucky wide receiver Chris Matthews
